Update On Times Square Bomb Scare, Video Included

- By Bossip Staff

Cops are hunting a man caught on tape moments after an SUV packed with enough fuel, fertilizer and explosives to ignite a massive fireball was abandoned in Times Square.

“The intent was to cause a significant ball of fire,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Sunday. “It’s a sobering reminder that New York is clearly a target for people who want to come here and do us harm.”

Security cameras captured a white man who appears to be in his 40s leaving the scene near the bomb-laden Nissan Pathfinder on W. 45th St. – engine running, hazard lights flashing and smoke curling from its vents. On the video, the man takes off a dark shirt to reveal a red one underneath as he hurries along Shubert Alley.

“He looks around, takes off that shirt, puts it in a bag and continues to walk south, looking a couple of times in a furtive manner,” Kelly said. A Pennsylvania tourist who was videotaping mounted cops in Times Square reported he also may have filmed the suspect “lunging” away from the car – and NYPD detectives went to check his film, Kelly said.

Inside the SUV, cops found dozens of M-88 firecrackers, three tanks of BBQ-style propane, two red plastic jugs of gasoline and a metal locker densely packed with eight supermarket bags of fertilizer.

The whole thing was wired to two cheap yellow old-fashioned travel alarm clocks set to work in tandem – one blowing up the propane tanks and the other exploding the contents of the locker.

Kelly said experts are investigating why the bomb didn’t detonate.

    First of all i want to say that i am so happy that the bomb did’nt go of and hurt anyone. I am also glad that the cop was able to clear out the area an call in back up to defuse the bomb. Is he a Hero ? yes and no. I think the real Hero is those street venders who saw something and say something. The cop was just doing his job, But he is the one thats getting all the prays and the hero welcome and the big dinner with the Mayor. what happen to the two vendors that say something to the cop so he can jump into action? what happen to their dinner? what happen to their prays. Because if it wasn’t for those venders it would of been a blood bath that night.

    wow……. smh. thank God for that bomb not going off thats night.He was looking out for New York. Its truely said that our own people Americans are trying to destroy us as a country. Those vendors saved New york that night with the help of the police not the other way around. If those vendors whould have never been out there then that police would have never know but yet he gets all the praise. smh. Well they are heros to the people. I believe they are gonna catch that men, atleast i hope so. Alot of people lives were saved.

    Thank god it didn’t go off. I will never understand people who are having hard times who want to hurt other people. Sounds real bogus though. What type of moron would do something like that in times square? That place probably has a billion cameras all around. I bet since he’s a white boy he won’t be a “terrorist”.

  • nyob

    Probably one of those upset Baggers trying to get “their” country back. If it is, I wonder what the sh*t-starters, Palin, Steele, Beck and Limpy will have to say?

  • M

    This is bs how is the cop a hero? He aint do nothing but call the bomb squad and more cops! His JOB! The media is full of it. The “suspect” is probably a CIA agent. A homegrown terrorist trained by the government.

  • love bo

    I too think it is a teabagger. They failed at stopping healthcare, financial reform, education reform. They are determined to make something his(POTUS) WATERLOO. They are now claiming that the oil spill is his KATRIN. In my opinion you can’t compare the 2.

    POT, MEET KETTLE. The Mexican President decried SB1070 as a “violation of human rights” merely for enforcing laws FAR less tough than his own. It is a FELONY to enter Mexico illegally–2 yrs in prison. 10 yrs if you re-enter after deportation. Mexico deports foreigners deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate the law,
    not “physically or mentally healthy” or lack “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. It is remarkable that Calderon has the gall to go on U.S. TV and show such hypocrisy. Let this be a lesson to Americans not yet on board with us, as to the ridiculous double-standard ONLY WE are held to, and no other nation would ever accept. Enough!

    Arizonan families and ranchers are being killed by illegals coming onto their land/property kiiling their livestock, the killing the people that they have stole from…

    I guess you don’t remember the 4 New Jersey school kids, who were just hanging out but were executed, I guess you don’t remember that they were foreign and those kids didn’t do anything to provoke it. They didn’t have the money that the illegals demanded and killed them, all except for 1. They are a different breed, way different from the previous generations that came here. They are a hateful mean-spirited group, that means you more danger than good. Did you even notice that SoulEse didn’t deny one thing I said about them wanting to kill blks and take over AMerica? Did you notice he never DENIED it.

    Yes, I did marry foreign. I do not regret it.
    My husband came here legally. As did the rest of his relatives, mother, brother, cousins, etc,. the Mexicans are the only ones who believe that since they can walk over, this country belongs to them..The hispanics do whatever dirt they want to, and then go back home, to Mexico…My husbands home is here,in the States. And belive me,anytime, they want to start, we will gladly take our money and family and move to Canada. I don’t have loyalty towards a bunch of blks that sing “Kumbayah” while we are being slaughtered. If you are not going to stand, don’t look towards me, when the chicken come home to roost…
